Somebody’s Watching Me….

We use to have a security system when my hubby worked nights. It was nice to have the extra security since it was just me and my 6 year old son. Then he stopped working and we couldn’t afford it anymore. But that was okay, because my husband was home now.

Now we can afford to have a security system, like Vivint, but I’m not sure I want it. Have you seen what Vivint home automation can do? You can turn on and off small appliances like the coffee pot or lamps all from your smart phone!  You can also auto lock your doors and have video surveillance. I would be afraid the locks would auto lock and I wouldn’t be able to unlock them. Weird, huh?

I bet my neighbor has the video surveillance, though. They keep tabs on who is in their yard. HELLO!! You live on a cul-de-sca with children! There will be kids on your lawn at one point. I always get creeped out walking by their house, like somebody’s watching me…



Vivint security does have the regular security systems. They don’t use wires, they use cell signals and you can have remote access through an app on your phone – cool! We still have the old security tabs on our windows, yuck.


What about you? Do you use a security system?
